About Hummel's Nissan - Why Choose Us

Hummel's Nissan proudly serves drivers from Des Moines, Ames, Ankeny & beyond since 1929

The roots of Hummel's Nissan trace back three generations to 1929. That's when Henry Hummel and his two brothers began selling and repairing automobiles in Beaverdale. Initially the Hummel Brothers dealership sold Plymouth, DeSoto, Hudson, and Essex vehicles.

By the 1940's the next generation was involved in the business, with Henry's sons John, Hank, and Bill operating the dealership at 2822 Beaver Avenue. The vehicle line-up now consisted of Plymouth, DeSoto and Studebaker. By the late 1960's this next generation of Hummel Brothers was looking for an import brand and had the opportunity to drive a new Datsun 510. They quickly determined that this exciting, economical car line was technologically ahead of its time. In 1969 Hummel's became Iowa's first Datsun dealer

Bill Hummel eventually bought his brothers' share of the business and in 1978 Bill's son Mark joined the dealership. Mark's younger brothers, Kevin and Perry would soon follow and all three eventually purchased the family business. In 1983 Datsun became Nissan and in 1986 Hummel's Nissan moved from Beaverdale to their present facilities on Merle Hay Road in northwest Des Moines just south of I80.

85 years after the founding of the family business, Hummel's Nissan can proudly claim the title of Iowa's #1 Nissan Dealer*. Hummel's annually earns recognition from Nissan for service excellence and continues to grow and improve facilities.
